The reason you can't find a solution is because FTP doesn't support folder operations. Using mget is one solution, another is to list all files and go a get individually. If you search for this frequently asked question I'm sure you'll find sample code.

If you haven't found anything useful online, then either you haven't actually tried very hard, or you have additional requirements you haven't mentioned yet.

Try this:

No idea what you searched for, but there are plenty of suggestions at ftp get all files - Google Search[^].

I'm not trying to grab the files singly b/c they change from day to day, I need to be able to grab an entire folder

Well if ftp does not allow that there is nothing you can do. Look at the ftp documentation to see whether there is a shortcut method that will do it..

If writing a loop in C# to get all files is too much, why did you tag it as C#?

You simply have no choice. The only thing you can do is get the list of files in the folder, then download every file one-by-one.
Short Answer: No.
By definition, FTP is a protocol that makes transfers at the file level.
The only other consistent features are based on navigation to the files, or selection of multiple files.

What you may want to do is talk to the owner of the FTP information you desire and see if they can create a daily ZIP for you to download.
